Overview

Grindelwald-First: stunning views and adventure await.

This Grindelwald-First excursion is everything you’d want to experience in Switzerland, and more! Delight in magnificent views of the Eiger North Fac and surrounding scenery and then prepare yourself for some truly remarkable alpine adventure. Experience the spectacular First Cliff Walk, or go for a 50-minute hike on the trail to Lake Bachalp. Most who embark on this excursion cannot forgo the chance to try the First Flyer, an 800 metre zipline from First to Schreckfeld traveling at a top speed of 84 km/h – this activity will leave you breathless. Journey back down from Bort to Grindelwald on a trottbike or perhaps try out a Mountain Cart. Travelling with children? You’ll want to set some time aside for them to enjoy the adventure play area at the Bort station, a wonderful playground catering to smaller visitors. Treat yourself to an amazing meal at the Restaurant First, offering 350 seats and a lovely sun terrace to take in more picturesque views. Grindelwald First, it may be your first peak adventure, but certainly won’t be your last.
